The first presidential debate of the 2020 election felt more like a boxing match as President Trump and Joe Biden spoke over each other while moderator Chris Wallace’s objectivity was questionable to say the least.
While there is plenty to discuss about this historic and chaotic debate, it is important to point out the barrage of lies that came out of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Lie #1: Trump on pre-existing conditions
Almost as soon as the debate started, Joe Biden alleged that President Trump wanted to do away with pre-existing conditions when the truth is that he and republican legislators have stated for years that it would always be part of any program to replace Obamacare.
Lie #2: Biden’s Ukraine quid pro quo
Despite being on tape telling then-president Petro Poroshenko to fire the prosecutor “or you’re not gettin’ the billion dollars,” Joe Biden denied President Trump’s assertion that he “threatened Ukraine with a billion dollars” saying, “That is absolutely not true.”
Lie #3: Misquoting Trump on Charlottesville
Joe Biden repeated one of the corrupt mainstream media’s favorite lies about the president- that he complimented white supremacists who attended the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. Biden quoted Trump as saying, “There were very fine people on both sides.”
The truth is that the president immediately followed that up by adding, “And I’m not talking about the neo-nazis and the white supremacists, they should be condemned totally.”
Lie #4: Trump said “inject” bleach
Another media lie that the former vice president repeated last night was the claim that President Trump encouraged Americans to “inject bleach” to fight COVID-19. What president Trump actually said is much more innocent as he thought-out-loud about exploring new technologies like UV treatment that could do “something like” disinfectant.
Lie #5: The Atlantic’s “suckers & losers” smear
One of the mainstream media’s most recent smears against the president is the completely unfounded claim, based on “anonymous” sources, that he used the words “suckers & losers” when referring to dead soldiers in France. That disgusting attack has been thoroughly debunked by more than 25 administration officials.
